Insurance Advisernet HR and WHS Support

Getting it right, upfront.

In 2023, reactive advice lines and ad hoc templates are inadequate for meeting the specific needs of each business, emphasising the necessity for a proactive Risk Management approach towards HR & WHS practices in the workplace.


Insurance Advisernet is working with Business 360 to ensure that you have access to experts who will work directly with you to create & update your current systems to 2023 standards.

Identify Employment Practices HR Risks and Become a Best Practice Australian Workplace

Insurance Advisernet and Business 360 have developed the EPL Risk and Compliance Audit tool to assist you to elevate your client’s awareness about their non-compliance risks and exposure to employment practice disputes. This tool provides a high-level assessment of:

  1. You and your client’s level of awareness of their legal obligations
  2. Preparedness to demonstrate HR and WHS employment practices to meet policy wording and legislated standards.

Employment Practices Risk

Employment relations or HR is a complex and difficult area to keep up to date, with a constantly changing landscape of new laws being added or changed. Through you, as risk management advisers, Business 360 is here to assist and add value to your client relationships. Together our aim is to help businesses be aware, be prepared and be proactive in managing the risks with employment relations and the disruption it can cause the workplace.

Australia has complex national workplace relations legislation covering Types of Employment, Industrial Instruments that govern Wages, Entitlements and Conditions. Having these correctly determined is paramount before any document system is created and implemented.

Insurance Advisernet’s partnership with business 360 provides brokers access to education, information and advice about managing workplace risks and helping with ‘hands-on’ support to effectively address employment matters.

Audit your EPL Risk & Compliance below

Answering the following 10 questions will help you identify areas of non-compliance that need corrective action.


Benefits of effective Employment HR & WHS practices

  • A productive workforce with an accountability culture
  • Identify procedural gaps or compliance issues to mitigate HR risk
  • Safeguard exposure to breaches and fines relating to Fair Work Australia and Safe Work legislation
  • An independent, objective and systematic review of your HR function by an industry lead
  • Written specifically to support the business operations
  • Clarity on the difference between HR compliance (must have) and best practice (nice to have)

Risks of incomplete Employment HR & WHS practices

  • Significant compliance exposures with potential financial penalties from Fair Work or Safe Work Australia
  • A reactive workplace results in wasted time, money and worry from a lack of HR systems and effective people management
  • Uncertainty in dealing with non-performing staff resulting in cultural erosion
  • A tendency to blame other people rather than acknowledge a lack of HR systems and poor practices, losing talented people through lack of professionalism in the workplace
